    I didn't see that :eek:

    Then just don't watch men's tennis.

    What is boring is that no one can beat him and not that he beats everyone.

    Federerfanatic's alter ego perhaps :lol:

    ^Do you seriously believe that? All pros use paintjobs, and they all say "yeah this new technology is great, thanks (fill in company here)." It's crap dude, don't believe everything you read.

    Congrats to Rafa for his 9th Masters Series and his 3rd consecutive title in Rome (first one to win Rome 3 times in a row). The legend keeps growing.
    It´s not human what he has been doing in the last 3 years. He is making history on clay and I think he deserves more recognition.
    His streak is 77 (the longest streak ever on any surface) but the most amazing thing is the tournaments he had to win to keep this streak: 2 French Open, 3 Montecarlos, 3 Romes, 3 Barcelonas and Bastad and Stuttgart in 2005. He barely played small clay tournaments to enhance his streak, and that´s a difference with other streaks from the past.
    Putting French Open, Montecarlo and Rome all together he won 44 matches in a row (biggest tournaments against top players). He never lost a match in the French Open and Rome and he was never forced to play a 5th set in the French Open.
    The streak is amazing but it´s more amazing the tournaments he had to win to keep this streak. I don´t like how the ATP website talks about his streak like if it was some kind of lottery (72,73...).2 French Open, 3 Montecarlos and 3 Romes in a row are much more impressive. It´s time to praise Nadal because he deserves it.

    navratilo......should wait for the grass season and heap the praise on"all things roger" then cry from all the nostalgia it brings-when martina was a wimby champion.

    Let me know once he matches Borg's 6 Roland Garros titles and surpasses Evert's hallmark of 125 consecutive wins on clay. Then we can talk greatness. ;)

    It's gonna be difficult for Nadal to match Chris Evert's record, but I'd like to see Chris Evert win a single atp match on clay though. ;)

    No. We can talk of greatness now. The Evert record only matters in women´s tennis, not in men´s. So if those are your standards, you cannot appreciate greatness on Federer until he wins 15 majors or 7 Wimbledons? ;) LOL
    Rafa made history and he is still making history. Even the Nadal haters have to admit it.

    It seems Evert also made history by losing 10 grand slam finals to Navratilova- that must be a recorrd for slam final losses to the same player. But she still has a very impressive record overall.

    Don't also forget Nadal is still only 20 years of age - what a fighter.
